You know how I am about Mary Poppins! I can’t wait to see MARY POPPINS RETURNS on December 19! I’ve got some brand new character posters to share with you and a sneak peek at the movie. You get to hear a little bit of a new song in this sneak peek too! Check it out, and let me know what you think. I think it is very much in the spirit of the original movie’s soundtrack.
Sneak Peek at Mary Poppins Returns
In Disney’s MARY POPPINS RETURNS, an all-new original musical and sequel, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives following a personal loss. Emily Blunt stars as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any ordinary task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure and Lin-Manuel Miranda plays her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London.
